[applause] >> thank you, mr. mayor. speaking of businesses like this, being in the midst of a construction project for many months can be challenging for small businesses, and i think all of the businesses up and down this stretch of valencia can attest to the fact that it was challenging and we worked hard to make it as smooth and quick as possible so they could be the beneficiaries with the rest of the neighborhood. i want to again acknowledge mike gillotti the contractor who built all of this. they did a great job. given the conditions we had they got done faster than we thought they would. i pt want to acknowledge our buu of construction manage
of public health. >> thank you. the department is requesting that we use the state contract low of the city boilerplate, and this will put us in compliance with sb 785. this legislation, in regards to delivery of specialty mental health services for foster care children, and it mandates the use of standardized contracts statewide, so this would be for children that are placed out of county, and i have our director of children, youth, and families for the system of care for community behavioral health services. thank you. >> supervisors, this should give you an idea about the extent of the need. 534 children in foster care are facing -- are placed in san francisco. with the largest percentage placed in alameda county and san mateo counties. the reason they are placed in those counties is because half of them are placed with relatives, and the remaining in foster homes. they all actually have a right and need to access and services when they have the need. right now, it is not easy to enter contracts for services with them, so the change is to create more timing access for the children living
warning and give you examples of how early warning is being used various places around the world. the stage we're at with our implementation in california is we're looking for a small number of potential users, just to work with on on trying to define the kinds of information that uses it and how they want to receive it and how it can be used. as i mentioned, bart is a group. we have a few other groups that are starting to show interest and i'm hoping that the groups represented here might be interested in getting involved as well. and that's pretty much it. thank you. >> thank you. >> and we're going to ask if there's any questions. any questions from members of the disaster council for dr. allen? seeing none. thank you. are there any comments from the public at this time? seeing none, we're moving on and go back to item 4 and i believe we -- we need to switch some places here, right? okay. and so item number four is mapping vulnerable communities and the mayor's office on disability and -- susan meissner and karla johnson are here. >> good afternoon. i'm carla johnson and i'm h

. they should get a new principle use, self service restaurant and wine shop. and something very unique open space in an enclosed area where people can get together. that, to me, is very practical. we are in the year 2010. they are running out of money. there is no more cushion. they put $2.1 million into a building which i thank you for, prior to that it was a complete eye sore. and it is probably never going to come back to us. but we can solve a problem. instead of create new ones or make new ones. what we can do today is move a step in the direction to take a new use, self service restaurant, wine shop in the open space. what i like about the open space is a lot of non-profits right now are drying up and they need venues and space. this is a perfect space. recently an event there was and over 100 people showed up. it was a wonderful event. the city needs to look at adjustments of models, more practical uses during this economic recovery. we are probably going to be in this for about five more years at the least. i don't see any light switch. they own the building. let's grant them the ne

the proposed restaurant does not comply with condition 36 under those uses that were stated and would currently not be permitted. want to say i received correspondence today from commissioner miguel. i believe property managers are here to answer questions. they believe it is necessary or desirable for the following reasons. in 1989 a limit on types of foods that were place on the projects to address the concern of neighborhoods over mcdonalds possibly locating in the shopping center. since that time the department developed more effective code regulations that address this concern eliminating the need to regulate food uses in the manner done in condition 36. project would allow greater flexibility to augment the types of restaurant and restaurant tenants in the shopping center to meet the consumers ever-changing tastes. it would replace a formula retail use with another not altering the balance. this concludes my presentation. >> thank you. project sponsor. >> i represent lakeshore plaza. we have a short presentation. we will be able to fit it within the 15 minutes. courtney jones is with cros

and taxes. my financial needs are high. in this economy, none of us can afford to lose our jobs. >> next speaker. >> ion a store located in the marina, and i am here to represent district 2. first of all, he does have a good voice. we are not multimillionaire's. we do not have high-paid lobbyists. i appreciate when the supervisors listen. we also do not have a communications director on full- time express. we are small, hard working businesses. we really are, and my speech is to talk about how benevolent we are as small business owners. there are a couple of supervisors i hope will listen to how challenging it is to be able to compete with not only this chain store but also the perspective of the other big chain stores potentially coming. i feel it is appropriate to give a few examples as to how benevolent. of the gives thousands of dollars to the organization and rigid bobb -- bobby give thousands of dollars to the organization paws, and they have taken donations from pet food express fear reagan -- pet food express. >> thank you very much. next speaker please. >> i have listened to the
review. the charter also requires a price tier to be considered them for us to hire an independent consultant to review the cost of service as well as the rates and to bring them before you. today i have 14 brief slides i would like to walk you through. the most important part from the staff perspective is to hear from you if there is a particular criteria or rate design or creative policy idea or implementation policy would like us to factor in as we review these rates and proposed rates, and then have those ready for you to deliberate on and consider it later this year in late november or early december. if i could just transition to the power point here on the computer, the review progress and objectives of the first item -- we have contacted with others to contribute to the rate design and rate analysis. to date we will update you on where they are and get your thoughts on criteria, a key policy directives, and special rate setting. you will be able to share those today and have agreements and questions all throughout the fall. we encourage you to forward those to us as well. t
: could you explain a little but why you think the california state code would be better than using our san francisco code? what is it that we would be changing? >> it is the contract thing language that all counties are expected to comply with, and also a sense of time line in terms of authorization timeline and also a timeline for setting up payment schedules so that it has statewide application. supervisor chu: from a statewide perspective and the use of those funds, is it a requirement of san francisco? >> it is in our contract with the state department of health services. supervisor chu: are there any members of the public who wish to speak on item 6? seeing none, public comment is closed. questions from the committee? we have a motion to approve and send this item forward with recommendation. thank you very much. madam clerk, are there any other items before us? >> no, madam chair. supervisor chu: thank you. we are adjourned. but chair maxwell: welcome to lay and use. i am the chair, sophie maxwell, and i am joined by david chiu and later eric mar. madam clerk? clerk somera: pleas
this and set up to meet with us about trying to find a compromise that will allow for this event that we learned is much loved by the public to take place, but the same time respecting and helping the park. we believe this is a compromise meeting many of these goals. let me go through some of the things that we have changed. the date is saturday, october 16. we could not do sunday, because sunday is the women's marathon. we moved this to one week later. when we have harley strickley, we have to stop watering the meadow and then there was no time to give this water. then we have time to buy -- revitalize the grass before we have to turn the water off before the car show, otherwise they will damage the ground. by moving this back one week, and that was really the best option, it gives the metal a little bit more time. we have reduced the number of vehicles to 50 fewer cars than last year, which gives us more of an ability to protect the trees and tree roots and other things like this. the promoters have been working with us on a code of conduct that we will be actively promulgating
of shipping containers. it was important for us that we made this project for the place, of the place. what i mean by that is participants would also used repurchased materials. >> we will be speaking to one of the artists that you selected. what excited you about his idea? >> have many things. first of all, i am a fan of his architecture. because of that creativity, i knew that he could come up with something unique. i love the fact that he was specifically addressing the landscape around here, and it was also about the human interaction with this place. >> what are your expectations with the people coming to presidio habitat? >> we really hope people will come with their family, dogs, and come back a number of times the works will change over the year. the feedback we are getting is you cannot do all of them on one visit. it is really better to come back and have different experiences. >> thank you. i am with mark jensen of jensen architect. he was one of the architects to be chosen to do the presidio habitat. when you heard about this project, what inspired you about that call? >> our insp
the ultimate sacrifice for us. as we transfer this treasure, this island, from the navy back to the city, i hope that all of us will remember the service and sacrifice of every sailor, every marine, living and dead. [applause] and the people who left from here and the people who serve today, risking everything, so that we can celebrate today. that legacy lives on in the young men and women who wear the cloth of this country and who are deployed around the world as we meet here today. when the famous or infamous bates 3 aligning closure process started in 1988, a final result of any individual base closure and transfer could not have hoped for a better ultimate outcome than what has been achieved in treasure island. the navy's charge is to dispose of property in a manner that promotes economic development. that has been done. the transfer of treasure island is a win for san francisco. it is a win for the state of california, a win for the united states navy, and a win for the american taxpayers who paid for this base and all the infrastructure that was here. because of this transfer, the ame
hard to get us here. i want to thank those just once again, the secretary, for his willingness to think differently and look differently at this project. this project was dead many many times, but it was because of his willingness to look at this in a new light and consider things that previous secretaries of the navy had not considered because of the great work of his staff and both the department of defense and because, more importantly, of the incredible commitment, not just passing interest, speaker ned to pelosi, who started this thing through three presidential administrations, secretaries of navy, mayors like me that come and go, members of the board of supervisors, treasure island development authority that stuck it out for all this time. to nancy pelosi, thank you yet again. what a remarkable effort. you deserve an enormous amount of credit. we thank you. we are proud of you. this is a big deal. on top of that, hunters point, which was a big deal. trans a terminal, doyle drive, the bay bridge. this is just getting things done. it is my honor now to ask up to the podium a fan of
us more of an ability to protect the trees and tree roots and other things like this. the promoters have been working with us on a code of conduct that we will be actively promulgating out to the participants about driving, picnicking, to help make certain that there is full thoughtfulness on the use of the metal. and they have been wonderful about this. the permits for this are $9,000 for the facility, and last year, this was 6300. this is the final year of the three-year phasing so this will go to 9000. and there is a leap -- remediation fee, dedicated to the metal. this will go into the fund for all the things that we can do to help that metal, specifically. the park patrol may remain the same at 1950. this is because there is some discussion about having the part do more and the police to a little bit less. and at their request, the date of the cars were moved to 1980 and older, as opposed to 1972. younger people kind of -- they want to reach out to the younger people and they had vehicles that are not as old. in the event of rainfall or wet weather, the department, in its sole
to the public and this is heavily used after-school -- and this is right next door to the ballet school and a number of students were using the after- school program. this will provide similar programming, and there has been a need demonstrated in the community for this already. >> commissioner harrison? >> i noticed that you went out at least one week, prior when no one showed up at the meeting. is this something that we need to look at in the discussions involving outreach. and there would be a further. out for the program. >> we will ideally look for three weeks. we will be coming back tea with the gift policy and the minimum time friend of all -- one week. we have had other community outreach meetings and more people have come. people are very happy with the boys and girls club and they feel like this is a good said. " have nothing to protest about the. >> just augment what she has said, in partnership with the boys and girls club, together, we had other community partners in the area, that we will be speaking to. they engaged this a number of times and the notion that the me
staffer, now my staffer, who worked so diligently through two administrations to get us through this day. i thank you. to the development team. to the residents of this island that have been patient beyond imagination. with the hope and expectation we would get to this point. to all those that are looking forward to the ground breaking to be hosted some time next year. it is pretty remarkable -- this is a small city, and about 10% of our land happens to be on three principal areas. all three of them former naval bases. out there in hunters point. the army out on presidio, and here on treasure island. 25-plus-hundred acres in the '70s -- the 1970's, 1980's, 1990's. since then, we have been talking about revitalization. we have been talking about reconstituting these pieces of property. just two weeks ago i had the pleasure and privilege of signing 12 pieces of legislation, marking over the course of over two decades over the course of hunters point. creating a framework on an economic development framework for 10,500 new housing units, 32% of them below market. hundreds of thousa
what that is? chairperson campos: this is a time for public comment. we do not interact. it is for us to listen to what you have to say. >> what i am saying is i have been teaching a class with brothers of change. i have some of my students here who can speak to the importance of media. having won facility is good, but it should be more open to the public. if you had studios to wrap the city, where these head ins are at, you could get more youngsters off the street. television production is really -- it helped change my life. if i did not get involved with the television, there is no telling what might have happened with me. what i am saying is give bay back the money, with stipulation that they would provide money for community centers to open up satellite facilities. i talked with mr. -- i am not a good speaker. i talked with mr. frazier and the department. chairperson campos: thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> my name is jen gilliman. i am the director of media strategies and managed the commons program at bay bak. we have had quite a year. it has been a challenge mergin
at these in-kind arrangements, when we look at the use of in leiu fees or improvements within a neighborhood, we all have mistaken that and that is good that it comes before the planning commission and even though the cac may be neighborhood and happen citywide and people moving into an area perhaps might have certain thing they are interested in and certainly becomes a more attractive area if the in-kind aproouchlts address the whole population of congressman, not just the population that lives in an area and it is important this be vetted as broadly as possible so that would be my feeling on it and we'll see what the other commissioners would say. i wouldn't mind a continuance for overs to have an -- to weigh in on it. >> i think the public park is a good example of the public opinion and to propose to do a public park and what we're talking about now is whether it pays for through the fees and the city built it or whether the developer built it and pay the feeses and there is a difference process about the department does and there are pub hick hearings by d.p.w. or m.t.a. and that engage
use the internet. what we used to do was carry the large maps and it took a long time to find the information. >> it saves the city time and money. you are not taking up the time of a particular employee at the assessor's office. you might be doing things more efficient. >> they have it ready to go and say, this is what i want. >> they are finding the same things happening on the phone where people call in and ask, how do i find this information? we say, go to this website and they go and get the information easily. >> a picture tells a thousand stories. some say a map >> good afternoon. i would like to welcome everyone back from the summer break. all of our staff was hard at work during this hiatus we have had. it is wednesday -- it is tuesday, september 14, 2:00 p.m.. [tolroll call -- all present] item seven has -- item 11 has been taken off the calendar and will be continued to the next meeting. the next item is approval of the minutes of the july 27 special meeting and minutes of the august 10 regular meeting. is there any provision? president crowley: colleagues, any
secrets that very few people know about them. this is one man that can help us now. i deal with students from universities where they make documents and then ask me questions. i would suggest that we engage the students from our universities to come and learn about our system and then encourage our retirees to volunteer sometimes so they can share their experience. yesterday, i was in the park and i was listening to this professor from uc-berkeley who bring students here to talk about sfpuc and all of the politics, the bonding. i was really surprised that a professor from berkeley has taken it upon himself to share information like this, because as you know, commissioners, you do what you have to do, but what leads things to happen is politics. and our young people should know about all the politicking that goes on and how sometimes if you pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure it pays good dividends, and if you do not pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure then we have rapid issues. jon is a great guy in all the time i have known him. it is really said th
to be more inclusive with public access, to bring more people in, to use the resources the best we can, to deal with this $170,000 to pay my staff members, one of whom is funded through the stimulus jobs now program through the end of september. without these $375,000 we will probably have to let them go. to tell you a little bit about the day-to-day operations of what goes on at the station, which provide free field gear to all of the producers, which is cameras, lights, tripods, microphones -- anything they need to do production in the field. we provide a main studio space with white grid and microphones they can use. we have a flash studio -- with light grid and microphones they can use. we have people editing in the edit suites. when we do not have edit suites available, we put them into a computer lab. we teach them to use e-mail so we can communicate with them more effectively. we host community meetings and public events. every month, we do some sort of networking and community event. we do orientations by appointments. all they need to do is call us and make an appointment. we
. there is a denial of our existence. i am asking if you can help us and work with us to guide society as a whole to recognize us as a people. our ancestors have participated in ceremonies and then within the city limits of in san francisco. we are asking to recognize these things and to allow us to continue to participate in these ceremonies. you know that our future generations can continue to participate in the ceremonies. that is what we're asking for here, for help. our tribe as a city entity can work together to. recognition for our people. we can work on being a part of this society and being a part of the way of life in which we live. >> i am here to let you all know that we have been participating in ceremonies since before my time. to let you guys buying no -- guys know that you can work with us and to have respect for ourselves and give us the opportunity to show the people in the communities that we are still here and we are not going anywhere. and to give us some space and time to show the community that we are still here and to show the future generations to come and we are still wi
have a strong and salsa-type music following. so a lot of us came down here in san francisco to joey's specifically on sunday's. so i know as far as all my companions from sacramento that we really enjoy jelly's. and we'll certainly regret it. all of us have felt safe at joey's, it advocated a clean, healthy, fun environment. i'm not aware of the details. i don't believe this is something that was due to joey's and their way of operation. i'd like to express my support for continuation of joey's. thank you. >> for public comment -- >> good morning. i'd like to speak about the waterfront land use plant study. >> this is situation is intolerable. to break up a club and put up a tower, which is against the waterfront plan use specifications that they should connect the land to the bay is crazy. they speak out of two sides of their mouth. that's called corruption. this is not about money and greed. hundreds of car garages is wrong. it's an already difficult situation we have now, so how could you approve a plan like this? it's ridiculous. all we can think of is what's behind all this. an
the communications sent to us since the last regular meeting. if you have any issues or points you would like to raise or ed regarding the advanced calendar, if you could also note those. the commissioners have also received the two indicated staff reports. >> i have some questions. first of all, i want to thank you for putting on the budget hearings well in advance. we usually wait until the last moment and scramble around. i do want some clarification. not the budget hearing, but under january 20, that is a thursday. but we are adopting -- is this a regular -- are we making this a regular meeting on january 20? >> we have several ceqa reviews coming up. as you know, the planning commission meets on thursdays. there will be several instances where we will be asking you if you will consider having a regular meeting or a special meeting of the commission the same day as the planning commission so that if they adopt the findings the commission can do it the same day. >> i see. going back to the schedule budget hearing -- january 13, i believe, is the regular meeting day. no -- it's a thursday.
have mixed feelings generally. what i wanted to do is ask if you can help us in an ongoing way for the board by setting up some way of communicating with us by e-mail, letting us know what is going on. i would particularly interested in those professional development opportunities, and some advice for when you think it might be helpful if we are available to show up to show support. i do not think it is appropriate for board farmers to be at all the meetings you have -- all board members to be at all the meetings you have. not only do i want to see how this is working and the potential implications, but also i think it is important for the people working at these schools to understand how important we think this is. if you can in the coming weeks figure out a way to do that, give us some advice. i would appreciate that. >> we would be glad to do that. commissioner yee: thanks for the report. i have been anxious to hear about these for a while now. a couple of things that would be helpful for me -- i would like to get an update of the organizational chart. i know you have given
state and federal funding for children, the foster care placement funding and allows us to draw down that same level of funding, but provide services for children in family settings who are at risk of going to a high level group home placement. so we're able to access more funding to provide the services that they need to maintain them in family settings. and that is an interagency partnership between human services, mental health, juvenile probation, and the school district. and then seneca connections is the private agency that actually provides the service. so it's primary -- primarily the child welfare kids and the few mental health clients who access that. and this just gives a little bit more description of who is actually eligible for the service. you need to be in at risk of group home placement and you need a 362 status or be a.b. 3632 eligible or have a.p. we're also offering it to adoptive families to make sure the adoptions stay in place. supervisor dufty: how long is that extended for new family adoptions? i have had situations where adoptive households have had iss
